    Now they are falling in love with that crap over at Hobart as well.

    Sheesh

    Anybody that did much repair learns to hate that junk pretty quick when you have to get it all out to fix it right.

      Are you using Kent's mystery flux or Allstate #? I'm proficient with TIG but I'd like to try my hand at gas welding AL. (A&P since '93)

        Matt,
        I use both, The Allstate # is 35 for the welding flux. I too started with Tig, then graduated to the torch for real professional work on sheet.
